Police break into six-figure club

Thomas J. Dolan of The Buffalo News analyzed police contracts and 2005 payrolls for seven towns and the City of Buffalo and found that "47 officers from Buffalo and the near suburbs broke the $100,000 mark in 2005, the last year for which complete figures were available. And nearly three dozen more are poised to do so, with gross pay in the high five figures." The investigation showed police receive a wide variety of "perks," from allowing them to cash in their unused sick time, to a contract provision that allows Cheektowaga officers to claim time and half pay if their lunch is interrupted by police work.
